Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I've never done couching before, so this was a new technique for me to learn, and with all new things, it was challenging at times. Rhoda K - I used a quilt binding stencil, which I drew on sticky backed, water-soluble stabilizer. Then cut and manipulated the design to fit the edges of my sweater. (I'll add this info to the review, as others might find it helpful).

Very nice!! Did you design the couching or have a ''design pattern'' for it? Great job.
